Our friendly neighbourhood Spider-Man is back, swinging into cinemas this week and since his first intro into the Marvel Cinematic Universe in 'Captain America: Civil War'.
'Spider-Man: Homecoming' is set soon after the events of 'Civil War', with 15-year-old Peter Parker trying to balance his new life as a mini-avenger and having to get his homework in on time. Tom Holland returns as Spidey, and the 21-year-old is exceptional in the role. Holland brings the wit, innocence and charm to Parker's Spider-Man that felt absent during Andrew Garfield's brief stint as the web slinger.
Iron Man's ongoing paternal influence in Spidey's development is explored further in 'Homecoming', with Robert Downey Jr donning his iconic suit once more for what's a bit more than an extended cameo. The film also stars Marissa Tomei, Jon Favreau, Zendaya, Laura Harrier, Jacob Batalon, Michael Keaton and Donald Glover.
The film is truly an excellent load of fun, but to say too much would be spoiling it, so here instead are 15 stupidly funny tweets to get you excited for 'Spider-Man: Homecoming'.
Me: Is that a web tattoo on your elbow because you like Spider-Man?
Them: Naw, I killed 5 people
Me: so you don't like Spider-Man?— Lord Goomba (@ObscureGent) June 27, 2017
Suggested to my daughter that we see the new Spider-Man movie next week. She made a face and asked if we could just see Wonder Woman again.— Daniel MacEachern (@DanMacEachern) June 30, 2017
I'm not saying Tom Holland is Spider-Man in real life. All I'm saying is no one's proven that he isn't.— Thomas Sanders (@ThomasSanders) June 29, 2017

In spider-man home coming, spider-man does in fact come home.
I've been in digital media for 12 years. One thing I've learned is that nobody wants pictures of Spider-Man. Daily Bugle is more proof.— Pixelated Boat (@pixelatedboat) June 29, 2017

I know more about Spider-Man's origin than I know about how my parents met.— Nick Ross (@NickBossRoss) February 15, 2016
I was quite flexible when I was younger. The kids at school used to call me Spider-Man because my uncle was murdered.— David Hughes (@david8hughes) April 21, 2017
